Re: Concerta;every day or some days for not to develop tolerance?

I've taken 54 mg concerta for four days. It's effect decreased day by day. Even though I intended to go on to use. But i've found an article (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/art...ne.0033693.pdf). In brief according to it methylphenidate caused a significant loss of dopamine neurons in mice in long term. I know mice and human are very similar generally but also may be different. But i'm in doubt and so took a break.
What do you think about this article?
